Post Show Notes
--A solid show going into the June Battle of Memphis event. Larry sets himself up as a major threat to Lawler and JYD by defeating Bill Dundee. He and Sawyer will be a formidable tag team.
--Larry Z could be the backbone of the roster if not for the fact that he’s not available on Saturdays due to his Georgia contract. I have a couple of more important contracts to deal with at the end of the week.
--Moondog Spot is becoming a problem backstage. He briefly improved his behavior after being called out on it by the rest of the locker room. Of course, our old friend Jackie Fargo ordered him to cut it out and…buy drinks for everyone after the show.
